True American Heroes – Ed “Doc” Pepping

Ed Doc Pepping

Maybe it is my overwhelming sense of patriotism or maybe my prior service in the military that makes me realize the honor of being in the company of such men.  American heroes, like Ed “Doc” Pepping (pictured above), truly make me appreciate the sacrifices made by those who came before us.

For those who don’t know who Mr. Pepping is, he was a medic with Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne, who was the recipient of the Bronze Star Medal for his actions in Normandy in the days following D-Day during WWII.

Does “Easy Company” sound familiar?  It should if you watched the HBO Series “Band of Brothers”.

I suppose that the older I get, the more I appreciate history and especially the fleeting history that still lives through men like this.  I will always take whatever time I can get with these heroes and patiently listen and hang on to every word they have to say.

It was a distinct honor to meet Mr. Pepping at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas a few years ago while he was signing his book.  Given the opportunity I would love to hear more stories he has to share.

If you wold like to know more about Mr. Pepping and his story, check out the blog that his son,  Matt Pepping, runs in honor of his father’s heroism.
